Hump Day Kick Start – Trophy, Tux, and Tabloid Edition

Hump Day Kick Start – for your muse, a writing picture prompt, or just a visual treat.

Alexander ludwig


Today, I have done something sneaky. Yeah…I really can’t be trusted. Not only do I give you a fun prompt, I’m also blatantly asking for your consideration in voting for my book MUTINY OF THE HEART in the 2015 RONE Awards. See how I did that? The prompt has an award in the photo. Clever, huh? Information about voting is at the end of this post.

Bonus points if you know who this fella is.

So who is our prompt? Why is he wearing a tux? Why is he in the pool? Did his superstar girlfriend push him in after seeing a write-up about his clandestine fling with her rival after an awards ceremony? Could he be the debonnaire gentleman who just fished the gorgeous hostess’s golden statue from the water during a poolside soiree? Is he an Aquaman/007 Bond hybrid who drinks coffee instead of martinis? Was there just a really strong gust of wind?

Love to hear your take or “caption this photo”.

Also, if you feel so inclined, I would love to have your vote in the 2015 InD’tale RONE awards. MUTINY OF THE HEART was reviewed by InD’tale and given 5 stars. Because of that, the book was entered in the RONE contest. You do have to register to vote. But it’s super easy to do.
I am in the Historical Post Medieval category. It is a large category, and you can vote for two of your favorite books.

Thanks so much for your consideration! *air kisses*

    Her voice floated through the air. “It’s so sweet you swam all the way to keep our date….. but where is my Black & White Cookie? You think a little WATER is going to impress me? Think again…..”

    Boy, she’s tough. That suit is probably ruined. Shoulda remembered the cookie…

    Can’t take the time to spin a story today, but CAN vote! Consider it done.


  4. jbrayweber says:

    Awwww….thanks, Sarah! I knew I could count on my twin. 😉


  5. Voted! It’s a great book so that was an easy choice! I think this guy is a new “James Bond” type and has just kicked butt all over a dastardly fiend and casually swims up to the beautiful girl with the hotel key in his hand- “Care to help me change?”

    Thanks for your vote, Stacey. *twirls finger on the table, avoiding eye-contact, blushing*

    LOVE your take on the prompt. Sexy!

    “Ah, there you are Leticia:”, a disheveled, Colin exclaimed.:
    “Yes, my darling, I’ve been waiting for you.”
    Colin sputtered ” Waiting for me? WAITING for me, you say?”
    After you threw my award Academy award statue, I might add into the water, you expect me to greet with a smile and a kiss?
    “Oh, Colin. Don’t be such a fuddy-duddy. It was all in good fun.
    You know that your rival James, James Bond that is was fuming at the poolside.
    . I threw the statue in the pool to appease him a little.”
    “Don’t give that appease excuse, I know what you’re doing, Leticia.
    You’re playing with fire”
    Leticia smirked and said “Yes. And I think I doused the fire with James when he saw me kiss you in the pool house”
    Colin blushed and said “Well, yes. That was a memorable kiss, I will admit”
    Leticia approached Colin and said ” Why don’t you change and we’ll have a go at celebrating your win.”
    Colin and Leticia left and continued to celebrate his win and a most glorious way.

    “Jeeves!” shrieked Lady Miralda. “I told you to bring me the paper and some water.”


  15. jbrayweber says:

    Uh-oh. Someone is going to get “reprimanded”.
